On Wednesday (31 March), 17 officials from Chinese state provinces and the Chinese Academy of Forestry Science will meet  ICF vice president Fenning Welstead and ICF executive director Shireen Chambers at the ICF headquarters in Edinburgh.

The visiting group is headed by Gao Yuying, director-general inspector of the development & funds management division of the State Forestry Administration of China.

It is hoped that this meeting will help pave the way for future co-operation between China and the UK on forestry and arboriculture matters.

Shireen Chambers said: "We can all learn from each other. We're delighted to have the opportunity to raise the profile of our members working in forestry and arboriculture.

"With the increasing international focus on climate change and the bigger picture, it's very important to support co-operation and mutual learning. As the Royal Chartered body for foresters and arboriculturists in the UK, the ICF should play a role in this."
